Honda’s new City light car will arrive in Australian showrooms from April, with more features and new styling.

The City has yet to strike a chord with Australian buyers, with just 60 sales in run-out mode last month, compared to 440 sales for the similarly-sized Jazz.

With the addition of a new ‘Display Audio’ system, a reversing camera, a bigger boot and more, Honda will be hoping for a boost to those numbers.

Powered by the same 1.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engine from the current City range, the new model still produces 88kW of power, but fuel consumption has improved from 6.3 l/100km in manual form, to 5.7 l/100km with a CVT.

The CVT is likely to replace the current five-speed unit as the automatic transmission option, and it remains to be seen if the current five-speed manual (or any manual) will be available locally in the new model.

Two variants will continue to be available, retaining the current VTi and more up-market VTi-L model designations.

Honda says the new City has more head room, leg room and shoulder room, while boot space has grown to a ‘class-leading’ 536 litres.

The new Display Audio system is compatible with iPhone 5 and above, and can operate ‘approved’ third party apps.

“The Honda City is a cut above its competition and with new styling and loads of standard features, it represents excellent value for money,” Honda Australia Director, Stephen Collins, said.

Stay tuned to TMR for more details on the 2015 Honda City closer to launch, but expect pricing around the same $16,490-$20,490 range as per the current model.
